    USA Today did a good job on a story a couple years back showing that private schools and public schools in richer areas win conference and state championships at a rate far higher than their proportion.

    Sometimes, you're just sorry the headline tricked you into clicking the thread.

    Why? There is a lot of bullshit surrounding high school and college athletics. Maybe you don't care, but there are real issues here.

    I'm confused.
    Is the orginal post an except from Winfield's book or the departed's summary of it?

    Thanks for the laff, newbie. That was the dumbest, and funniest, thing I've read in a while. What a way to start the morning.

    Yeah, high school coaches sit the poor kids like Larry Bird.

    I'm guessing he is talking about AAU teams to whom I would not sell my snot.
